The sign says dogs allowed but the DOC site says permit required. Email the local office - permits last 6 months.

Start by following the signs for the Lookout Track. This is a small out and back passing the toilet along the way. Once back near the beginning follow either of the signs for the Coastal Track. It doesn't matter which direction you go, you'll end up finishing back at the same spot.

    The main coastal track is an easy loop where you can't really go wrong. The Lookout track is an out and back with a few options but they all join back up.

    Generally good.

    Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

    There is a toilet but no drinkable water.

    Track can get slippery after either rain or very dry weather.
